    My T8 box arrived a few weeks ago but is installed with 15.2 Kodi. Is it worth upgrading it as it gives varying results that seem to be linked to the systems date and time (which resets after power off). If so is there any guidance on this as I’m not sure how to add the short-cut to the start-up screen of the latest Android version (which is quite nice to have).

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Mr Thompson, Kodi 15.2 works perfectly so we haven’t pushed Kodi 16 on the firmware as yet but that should have no relation to your time and date settings. As long as you select ‘auto update date and time’, have your location settings ‘on’ and choose your ‘correct time zone’ you should have the correct settings if you are connected to the internet (allow 30 seconds or so after boot up of your device so that it has enough time to connect to the internet).

      Thank you.

    • EntertainmentBox

      Hi deb, wait for Kodi to fully download, then use file manager HD or APK installer to install Kodi.

  8. Angus


    I may be wrong, I am most of the time but could I download kodi (12.4 or higher) on my ouya.

    I’m having trouble getting things to work out. I’m not tech savvy.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Angus, You should look for advice on ‘side loading’ ouya. Unfortunately we do not specialise on that platform.

      Thank you.

    Been having problems with my t8 keeps throwing me out. Have done an Un install then tried to install jarvis software but all I get is a black screen

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Terry, I suggest downgrading to Kodi 15 and see how it goes. Some builds of kodi will work better on some devices.

      Thank you.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Dennis, I would advise you to uninstall any previous bulids of Kodi before installing new versions to optimise storage capacity and to avoid conflict.

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Guy, you could try downloading an internet browser and then you should be able to download kodi directly from their site. Another option for you is to sideload the app Kodi onto your fire stick, click HERE for more info.


  12. Lauren

    Hi, my Kodi stopped working so I am trying to reinstall on my T8 but I click on Kodi on desktop nothing happens?

    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Lauren, you need to uninstall Kodi first before you can reinstall and you do this by going to SETTINGS-OTHER-MORE SETTINGS-APPS-KODI-UNINSTALL. The common reason for not being able to open Kodi is due to having too much data incurred in Kodi from wizard downloads. You can clear the data in Kodi by SETTINGS-OTHER-MORE SETTINGS-APPS-KODI-CLEAR DATA. Once done you can re-install your wizard or addons again.


    • Entertainment Box

      Hello Barry, yes you can download it to your device. The Kodi 16 is for testing and 15.2 is the stable version so far.
      Thanks mate.

  13. John Bowes

    I bought my T8 box from you. I have been having problems so I deleted Kody, I have re downloaded it, but can’t find where it is can you pleases help?
    Where will the file be? I used the Google browser to download it

    • EntertainmentBox

      If you open the app APK installer it will search all the files on your device for any apps you have downloaded.
      Or you can look in your downloads folder (this is located in apps)
